Now that itâ€™s March I think itâ€™s safe to say that weâ€™ve all accepted that 2012 is firmly here. Weâ€™ve stopped accidentally writing the date with â€ś2011â€ť, weâ€™ve given up trying to save the red roses from dying, weâ€™ve emptied out the fridge of chocolates and wine in either one way or another and we can relax as the genre themed chocolate buying madness is over for at least one whole month! Parents world over face off with dentists during this month.
I personally like March. It is over this month that the weather changes from one serious season to an intermediate season either winter into spring or summer into autumn and everyone finds themselves gambling with their clothing. You see people either freezing because theyâ€™re not wearing enough, melting because theyâ€™ve worn too much or looking smug standing in their shorts and fur lined coats. However, experience has taught us that not everyone suffers the crazy, mad weather as us in the UK. For example, in South Africa theyâ€™ve just slid out of one of the hottest summers since last year, parts of Europe have enjoyed a fairly mild winter with only seven feet of snow and according to one fairly disgruntled camper Scotland is still underwater.
Despite one major disruption when Donnie Rust smuggled a barrel of Labrador puppies through security and brought all work on the editorial floor to a complete and shuddering full stop weâ€™ve managed to once again hit the spot with our features. We learned how logistical giants Eqstra Fleet Management handle their huge organization, we marvelled at the creation of Rani Resortâ€™s purely solar island, we met medical heroes ER 24, spoke with Davis and Shirtliff, Radon Projects, Motheo Construction and dug deep with Underground African Mining. Stazo kept us up to spec with their marine decking. We were inspired by super recruiter Emma Vites and laughed ourselves into fits with South African comedian Mum-Z.
March may be an in between month for some but for us it is only one of the 12 breath-taking magazines weâ€™ll be bringing you this year.
